Wish upon a Starfish
The Sound of Waves
The crowd cheered and clapped as Pearl Swamp took a bow. Her diamond-studded costume billowed around her gold tail on the sparkling stage. Members of the audience whistled and tossed her beautiful bouquets of sea lavender.
Pearl waved as merfolk from all over the ocean cried out, “We love you, Pearl,” and “You are the best actress in the whole merworld!”
She couldn’t believe her good luck. A famous director had picked her out of all the merstudents at Trident Academy to star as Fishlein Maria in his play The Sound of Waves. As the curtain closed, a crowd of fans and reporters rushed to Pearl’s side.
“Miss Swamp, may I have my picture sketched with you?” asked a small mergirl.
Pearl nodded and lifted her pointy nose in the water as the merartist Piddock Picasso sketched her on a piece of kelp for her fan.
